Wouldn’t You Know – In Loving Memory of Justin Bates

This is the first song I recorded with my own band. It features Justin Bates, then a 19 year old phenom who’d never had a piano lesson in his life. Justin was a kind person and a monster talent. We’d touched base again recently to reminisce and iterate the honor it was to play together. R.I.P. Justin. Your talent will continue to decorate this world for as long as people are listening.

Justin’s sister and father recently lost their mother as well. Any donations to his sister to aid funeral costs are appreciated. Her CashApp is $almightyhummus
